Vintage Inspired Box

Vintage Inspired Box: Creative Mondays. I started Creative Mondays to give me a reason to get more Creative. This week I made my first Jewellery box. Out of a delivery box that was going into the bin!

Vintage Inspired Box

I had something delivered through the post but thought the box was just to good to throw away. So I cut up a old book into random triangles, rectangles and squares. I used wallpaper paste to glue them on so it wouldn’t dry all gooey like flour and water.

Waited a few days until completely dry and printed a photo of me and my 2 youngest children off the computer in sepia.

Then I dyed some lace using a tea bag rinsed and left to dry.

Creative Mondays

Then I got creative with lace, beads buttons and my picture. I also decorated inside. I am very pleased with my first proper ( that’s not just kids ideas ) craft project and cant wait for it to dry properly so I can put some things inside.

Vintage Inspired Box: Creative Mondays. What has everyone else been up to this week? I can not wait to find out.
